HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 cc202-3W
Mr. Probert

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity (1) what action she is taking to find employment in Remploy factories and elsewhere for the 214 registered disabled persons in the Mountain Ash and Aberdare employment exchanges;

(2) if she will examine the possibilities of providing a Remploy factory in the Cynon Valley, where there are over 200 registered disabled unemployed, and where no Remploy or similar facilities exist at the moment.

Mr. Fernyhough

My disablement resettlement officers will continue their endeavours to find suitable employment for all disabled persons registered at the Mountain Ash and Aberdare Employment Exchanges in the Cynon Valley. About sixty of these people are severely disabled and suitable only for sheltered employment and for them my right hon. Friend is considering, in consultation with Remploy Ltd., the provision of a new factory to serve that area.
